BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – FEBRUARY 2022

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks (Hebrew) during February 2022 shows that throughout the month a total of 187 incidents took place: 171 in Judea & Samaria, 15 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ and one in the Gaza Strip sector.

In Judea & Samaria, Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ the agency recorded 136 attacks with petrol bombs, 29 attacks using pipe bombs, fourteen shooting attacks, five arson attacks and one rock-throwing attack (note – the ISA only records rock-throwing attacks which result in moderate or serious injuries). In the Gaza Strip sector one arson attack was recorded. 

One civilian was wounded in a rock-throwing attack on her vehicle in the Binyamin area on February 28th.

The ISA’s report does not include the death on February 6th of a woman injured in a rocket attack on her home last May.  

“A Holocaust survivor who was seriously injured when a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit her home in Ashkelon last year died early Sunday morning, aged 91.

Naomi Perlman suffered shrapnel wounds in the blast that killed her Indian caregiver, Soumya Santosh, 32, one of the first fatalities in the fighting between Israel and Palestinian terror groups in Gaza over eleven days in May 2021.

Perlman’s death brought the total number of Israeli deaths in what was referred to by Israel as Operation Guardian of the Wall to 13, of whom 12 were civilians and one an IDF soldier.”

Mrs Perlman’s death was not reported on the BBC News website and none of the terror attacks which took place throughout February received any coverage on that platform.

    When it come to Israel, the BBC ignores the truth, ignores the facts and ignores the reality indeed anything that Islam does not let it accept. So much for the BBC’s reputation of impartiality and truthfulness, what a joke #defundthebbc
